A quantitative investigation of students' attitudes towards electronic book technology

The purpose of this study is to analyse the factors that have an impact on technology adoption for e-books utilizing the Analytic Hierarchy Process and Multiple Regression Analysis methods. Findings indicate that perceived usefulness and ease of use are the most significant determinants in using e-books. Of key significance is that Analytic Hierarchy Process results show that consumers make pairwise comparisons, adding environmental concerns to the selection process. Recognizing the importance of all these factors is valuable to e-book developers and marketers in presenting products that meet all consumer choice criteria. The Analytic Hierarchy Process provides researchers with a more thorough decision-making analysis.

Integrating machine learning techniques into robust data enrichment approach and its application to gene expression data
Erdogdu, Utku; TAN, MEHMET; Alhajj, Reda; Polat, Faruk; Rokne, Jon; Demetrick, Douglas (Inderscience Publishers, 2013-01-01)
The availability of enough samples for effective analysis and knowledge discovery has been a challenge in the research community, especially in the area of gene expression data analysis. Thus, the approaches being developed for data analysis have mostly suffered from the lack of enough data to train and test the constructed models. We argue that the process of sample generation could be successfully automated by employing some sophisticated machine learning techniques. An automated sample generation framewo...
Effective feature reduction for link prediction in location-based social networks
Bayrak, Ahmet Engin; Polat, Faruk (SAGE Publications, 2019-10-01)
In this study, we investigated feature-based approaches for improving the link prediction performance for location-based social networks (LBSNs) and analysed their performances. We developed new features based on time, common friend detail and place category information of check-in data in order to make use of information in the data which cannot be utilised by the existing features from the literature. We proposed a feature selection method to determine a feature subset that enhances the prediction perform...

The authors describe a user/customer needs gap model that can be used to develop a balanced approach to managing the gaps between business customer and end-user needs for new systems and the solutions that are deployed.
Assessing internationality of scholarly journals through foreign authorship patterns: the case of major journals in information science, and scientometrics
Uzun, A (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-01-01)
This article reports findings from a study of patterns of foreign authorship of articles, and international composition of journal editorial boards in five leading journals in the field of information science, and scientometrics. The study covers an American journal and four European journals. Bibliographic data about foreign authors and their national affiliation from five selected years of publication were analyzed for all journals. The foreign input of articles were extremely high in Information Processi...
